public access closed
sign please guys





The access route from Stonemill Walk onto the the Quarry Park has been there for many years, in fact it was there long before the road was built. It is used on a daily basis by the community to access our dwindling green space. The council have now blocked the access ‘temporarily’ for 6 months having bolted railings into the tarmac stating that it is in an attempt to curb anti-social behaviour that may effect the residents of Stonemill Walk. Unfortunately by closing the path they have now effected the wider community as there is no safe access from that side of the park as the others are all completely unlit, away from the road, unmaintained, overgrown and havens for local youth evident from the amount of empty beer cans, broken glass and silver canisters that line them. No notice has been given regarding this, no public meetings and no one has been given the opportunity to oppose something that has effected the wider community not just the residents of one street. By blocking a public right of way the council have acted illegally, the path belongs to the public not the council
